Emulate the Pharisee<http://orrologion.blogspot.com/2008/02/virtue-of-pharisee.html
The Triodion, interpreting Scripture, tells us that we are to not only to
imitate the humility of the Publican, which will justify us, but we are also
to obtain the virtue of the Pharisee. Thus, together, they are the most
perfect or most damnable of men - let us choose carefully.
*Let us make haste to follow the Pharisee in his virtues and to emulate the
Publican in his humility, and let us hate what is wrong in each of them:
foolish pride and the defilement of transgressions.
- Lenten Triodion, Sunday of the Publican & Pharisee, Mattins, Canticle 5.
